Cornerback Chandon Sullivan will play his first game as a member of the Vikings in Week 1 and he’ll do it against some familiar faces.

Sullivan appeared in every game that the Packers played over the last three seasons and made 20 starts the last two years, but said that he felt like moving to the Vikings provided him with a better opportunity for the 2022 season. Having the Packers on the other side of the field for his first chance to make something of that opportunity adds something to his Minnesota debut.

“I’m excited for a number of reasons,” Sullivan said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “It’s the first game, so you’re always excited about that. It’s a first game in a new jersey, and I’m going against my old team. So you know I’m full of emotions, but I’ll be ready.”

The Vikings also brought pass rusher Za'Darius Smith in as a free agent this offseason, so they’ll have multiple players set for a reunion as they kick off the next phase of their careers.

  1. Well atleast he won’t have to cover a good WR. What ever happened to the packers latest 1st round draft bust? Not playing much?

  2. I’ve watched every Packer game the past 3 years, and I can honestly say I don’t even know who Chandon Sullivan is.

  3. “What ever happened to the packers latest 1st round draft bust? Not playing much?”

    Oh yeah – you mean Laquon Treadwell! Oh wait, he was a Vikings 1st round WR bust. Wait, you must mean Troy Williamson! No, he was a 1st round Vikings bust too. Hmm – I guess I don’t know who you mean.

  4. Played with Packers for two years and I’ve never heard of the guy, and now he’s a starter for Us? I starting to get a little quesy about Kwesi.

  5. He didn’t look all that solid this summer, so the jury is still way out. And perhaps folks have never heard of him because the guy never screwed up, did his job and didn’t seek attention? And a cheeser above is correct, fear is a basic human emotion. So are vanity and arrogance — emotions literally oozing from our favorite cheesers. And they wonder why folks comment with glee during the annual playoff choke job.

  6. I respect him for enduring the merry-go-round “undrafted, on/off practice squad route” to appearing in multiple games. He wouldn’t have started for the Packers, but is likely better than some the backups they have.

  7. Sully is a good kid. He’s not a bad player but he had too many inconsistencies in the backfield,…Missed assignments. But he could make a few splash plays too. I hope he does well,.. just not against GB.
